The Lawrenceville School

Tel: (609)895-2030
Grades: 9 - 12 | 815 students
Lawrenceville requires students to take a minimum number of core courses in each academic department.
This traditional educational approach is complemented by a rich array of elective offerings.
Most of our students take 15 courses per year.
Academic advisors faculty members associated with or living in the Houses help students choose their courses each trimester.
These consultations focus on the overall degree of difficulty of the schedule, concerns about adjustments to the rigors of the School's curriculum, and commitments to athletic or extracurricular activities.
At Lawrenceville students are able to pursue their passions to the highest level and try new things.
Students admire each other's excellence, but they also respect their peers who venture beyond their comfort zones the musician who plays House football, the varsity athlete who participates in the spring dance concert, the student who writes for The Lit and competes for the robotics team.
